Aims/Description: Environmental change encompasses a range of issues which themselves change rapidly, in response to political shifts or new technologies. This module encourages a critical analysis of current major issues in environmental change, drawing on interdisciplinary research expertise and experience working in public and private sectors. It features seminars from TUOS and guest environmental and sustainability, and will involve a range of delivery methods such as discussion sessions and group horizon scanning exercises. The focus is on applying this knowledge to specific real world problems and on producing outputs that are accessible non-specialist senior policy makers or managers.

Teaching Methods: Seminars, Tutorials, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work
